When I first began to write this blog, I thought I would be dealing with weight issues.
I didn’t really think it through and have come to the realization that writing exclusively
about weight issues is actually quite boring and self-defeating.
I am fat. Objective sentence. Writing or not writing about that is not going to change it.
Signing up for the many (last chance! time running out!) specials run by those whose livelihood
is tied up with those that are overweight and not happy about it has not made a bit of long-
term difference in my case. I am an expert in nutrition, I know what has to be done and just
don’t do it. So spending money foolishly is not very smart. And creating a blog page devoted
to writing about it was also not a good idea. However, I do have the blog and rather than spend
time trying to create another blog, I will just expand the topics in this one.
I’d like to continue yesterday’s essay on United Airlines and their current public relations
daily nightmares! Today in the news, we read that a couple traveling to their destination
wedding was also asked to leave the plane. I don’t know about you, but by this time, I have
an inclination to give United the benefit of the doubt. Call me cynical but I think many
will try to capitalize on the current (negative) reputation to their own advantage. We will
never know the whole truth but I hope the newlyweds will begin their marriage without lies
to each other and that they will be able to trust one another after (or if) they were in
cahoots to get better seats to their destination place. Score for United on this one…but
I am sure it won’t be the last we’ll hear about people’s experiences. I am a long-time flyer
with United and have my own share of adventures, but those I’m saving (all names will be changed)
for the blockbuster I will write!
